Hello PA Birders:
September’s eBird chalenge is the same as last September’s. With migration in full swing this month, qualifying checklists will have the added detail of Flyover Code or “F”. This can be found at the bottom of the drop-down list of Breeding and Behavior codes. The F code needs further explanation and examples of correct and incorrect uses are given in detail the description of this month’s challenge on the eBird home page. Because the flyover requirements are so specific, checklists made at a hawk watch could be broken down into hourly segments. Fifteen eligible checklists are needed. As always, to qualify, all sightings must have counts only with no ‘X’s. Sightings also must be during this month and not from historical data.
For those using the Android version of eBird Mobile and you are getting an error downloading a checklist, you should update your app at Goggle Playstore.
